There are plenty of good AUDs to be had here at the archive. And if you want the good stuff in high quality then go the bit torrent way - I myself have been too lazy to do bt so far, and I'm down to only 12 gig left on the ole hard drive. May have to go splurge on some external hd soon then play around with utorrent some rainy weekend.

I,ve got some hd issues as well, one thing I figured out though is once the show(s) is finished downloading I let it seed to a ratio of about 1.5:1 then because of space on my drive its time to give it a home in my archive. I purchased a few CD-RW disc and after burning the lossy to disc I take and burn the show to the RW disc then rerip the show to my hd using 320 kbs MP3, after that I erase the RW and then place the lossy data on a 4.7 gb DVD and then remove the file from my hd, If somthing should happen to my harddrive or the audio disc I have a backup for my files and by reripping the show to 320kbs MP3 Ive reduced the file by over two thirds or more. kind of a pain but these shows are priceless in my eyes and want to make sure 1) I can enjoy it and 2) I can safegaurd it. As much as I would like to keep and seed everything I dl its just not possible. If there is something I have that needs further seeding I have the data to upload.

sounds like a labor of love

I listen mostly while working so 99% of what I listen to I simply stream from archive. I have alot of the good AUDs burned to disc for the car player
I also have alot of great discs sent to me by the especially generous folks here on the forum!!

I tend to give away lots of the AUD copies of what I do have so am constantly buying blanks and burning new copies.
